Riffle – Let’s talk about it, shall we?


I believe I’ve made it clear that I’m a big reader. I have, haven’t I? Right now I’m reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. I know, I know,  I’m about 4 years behind everyone else. I read for fun every single day, without fail. I’ve been like this for as long as I can remember. I never go anywhere without a book and if I don’t read before bed, I can’t fall asleep. I sound like a total nerd, right? Well it’s my lot in life and quite frankly, I think it’s pretty awesome. When I meet people who say they don’t read it’s like it doesn’t compute for me. I just don’t understand at all. Reading is essential to me. In fact, I would give up cooking and baking and eat pre-packaged meals for the rest of my life before I would ever give up reading. Take a moment to ponder that…yeah.

So anyway, my cousin Cress who is a librarian told me about this website called Riffle last year sometime and I’ve decided I want to make it a thing. I want people to like it. I want it to be popular. I want it to be the Facebook/Twitter for nerds like me. So, calling all nerds – go to Riffle, sign up, and follow me and a bunch of other cool people who love to read. I’m still learning how to use it but as far as I can tell it’s an easy way to keep track of books you’ve read, find new cool books to add to your must-read list, and see what other people think about the books you’re currently reading. Search for Maggie Hanson and you’ll find me there, making lists of The Best Books I Read in 2013 and Books to Read in 2014 and fun stuff like that. Do it, do it! You know you want to….

I’m also reading this:

PFMcoverThis lady is great. She’s been featured on NPR a lot and I’ve read two of her other books (Gulp & Bonk) and I love her comedic style. A comedy/science writer, who knew those existed?

So what’s everyone else reading? I’m always up for adding things to my 2014 list 🙂

  1. I am with you Maggie. Some of my best friends have been books. I read “Edgar Sawtelle”,
    a few years ago, in a teacher’s reading group. I always keep track of the books I read, so I can recommend them to others. I am reading, “Tell the Wolves I’m Home right now, and it’s good.

  2. I need some new book ideas! I will check out Ripple…it sounds a lot like Goodreads. I liked the story of Edgar Sawtelle…mostly b/c we have vacationed in that area of Wisconsin 🙂
